As the UK’s vaccine rollout provides a way out of the Covid pandemic, we are set to discover a host of new crises created from over a year spent in and out of lockdown. 

The cancer crisis is just starting to unfold, as it’s estimated around 3 million people missed cancer screenings between last April and August alone. How do we begin to catch-up, as NHS waiting lists grow? What could have been done differently? And what lessons can be learned to help cancer patients access faster, and better, care?

Kate Andrews talks to Delyth Morgan, chief executive of Breast Cancer Now; Professor Peter Johnson, National Clinical Director for Cancer at NHS England; Gordon Wishart, chief executive at Check4Cancer; and Neil Pumford, Asset Strategy Lead at Abbvie.
